With the proper suit, you get launched at hundreds of miles per hour through various means, vehicles, launchers, whatever. Points given for recovering like the guy in the video.

Whoever slides the furthest without dying wins.

       A giant slingshot and a polished steel surface, perhaps. No lube allowed.

       I'd want to see that.

       Watched the vid, I want that suit.   

       I wonder what the track surface was made of too.

       So, dying negates your chance of winning?

       No, but they put an asterisk next to your name in the record books.

       Hmm, let me reconsider that. How magnificent was his performance?   

       Okay, check that. Some guy breaks the world record for distance, form, number of flips at the end and we're gonna disqualify him because of the little glitch of getting killed?   

       Allright, ancient Rome style, audience chooses. Thumbs up as the hearse carts him away, he gets the medal. Thumbs down, announcer goes "Ohhhh, that's gonna be rough on the surviving family but sorry folks, rules are rules! Okay, next competitor is from Malibu California, his background is surfing water but let's see how he does on solid pavement, let's give a hand for...."   

       So yea, if the audience gives him the medal, go ahead with the asterisk in the record books but the widow can stand there with the medal on the platform (if she wants) advertising the event sponsor, "Remulon "Health" Bars, twice the sugar... yea, that's pretty much it."   

       Eh, that's too dark. Drop the sponsor advertising bit.
